Why are Heads Up Regs Limping on the Button

Recently I've switched game types to Heads Up and have noticed that a lot of the regulars are limping more often from the button than they are raising. I've seen it so much that I know there is a fundamental reason behind this. I just haven't been able to wrap my head around why anyone would let their opponent see a free flop.

Re: Why are Heads Up Regs Limping on the Button

are you just assuming they are winning players? vast majority of poker players are losing, that also includes those who play regularly

limping is fine (even necessary) in short stack situations, but there isn't really much merit in doing it with 100b+ stacks, I know exactly 1 winning player who does it (rec313, who is probably a bot). Please make sure that you're not in the wrong forum, this is for hu cash, not husng.

limping deep just makes your preflop strategy waaay more complicated, without providing large enough benefits

I always wondered about that rec313 guy on stars, his style is really strange (seems bad) but figured it was probably some type of bot that's somehow doing ok in the games given they have been around a while

Heyyy sorry about that! I'm a forum noob, so sorry about posting in the wrong thread.

I think your right I was giving too much credit to these cats, but I also wanted to double check to make sure I haven't missed any limping trends in the Heads-Up world haven't really grinded any Heads up in years so I was just making sure that this was just a sign of a loser or if there was a strategic reason for this

Thanks!

Great post. I agree about rec313, or at least was highly suspicious.
